Irelands Rough Coast
« on: September 27, 2007, 08:39:42 AM »

After my first picture post met with approval I'm going to show the next 2 photos I took in Northern Ireland.
I took this pictures while/after sunset near Ballintoy on the northcoast.

I hope you'll like the pictures.

Comments, criticism, improvement suggestens are welcome.











many thanks
Sebastian

I think #2 is clearly the better of the two because of the sunlight on the distant rocks. A more interesting sky, too. And, more contrast on the near rocks.

Not much going on the middle, especially the middle right. Maybe crop a bit from the right side?

Maybe crop a bit from the top?

It's a fine shot, and nearly a great one...

Like your other image posted at the landscape forum, these images are blessed with terrific lighting conditions. All three are well exposed. But, like that image, I would lighten and increase the contrast of the shadow areas in both of these images. Let's use the first image as an example. I would have used a fill flash (I think you are close enough) to light up the lower left corner foreground, followed by PS editing for the tip of the rocks at the distant upper left corner. As it stands now, both can be done by PS.

Instead of honoring your request to post an edited version of mine, how about doing so yourself, and see what others think? There is a wide range of ways to do this. For a quick and dirty fix, try the Highlight and Shadow tool.

You can see that no one would mistake me for being a "traditionalist" who does not "manipulate" an image after it is shot.

I think I prefer the first one, actually. I agree with Chris that I'd like to see some more detail on the rocks closest - some dodging would really help bring out some more definition, I think.

What are you shooting with?

Hey Chris,

thanks for your suggestions. I'll see if I can work on that with PS.
Next time I'll just take the flash with me... would be better, like you said.

I'm shooting with the Canon stuff... and I'm looking forward to the new 5D MKII or 3D or whatever might come.
